Child Abuse: A Concerned Voice for the Downtrodden

by Cyril Clinth
(Metro Manila, Philippines)

It is not actually an easy duty to protect the interest of such innocent souls who are placed to be victims of irresponsible parenting. The cry for a better system in upholding the divine law of rearing children in the most tender, nurturing and loving ways have gone out past. Based on the statistics presented, the occurrence of child abuse has dramatically increased for the past years and the resolution for the perennial problem has not been laid off.

Several non-government organizations are taking its part in concluding the rampant cases of child abuse across the globe.

Writers, and even literary students, have often quoted that the hope of our motherland is the younger generation. As an irony, many children still suffer the cruelty of violence and the stigma of social disgrace.

Homes are built for children to have a wonderful arena, where love and respect are displayed. However, for some, the hostility of an unwanted home has led many innocent children to their own grave and even sent to jails as they grow up lacking the wisdom of social adaptation.

I would like to be a part of such heroic campaign in curtailing the inhuman and barbaric child abuse.
